Buffalo Chicken Sliders - 8pp

Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Serves 4.  Serving size: 2 per person/ 8pp per serving.

1 onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 Tbsp water
1 lb ground, skinless chicken breast
2 Tbsp Buffalo wing sauce
1/4 tsp salt
Cooking Spray
8 (2-inch) mini whole wheat buns
8 green-leaf lettuce leaves
8 tomato slices
2 Tbsp crumbled low fat blue cheese

Spray large non-stick skillet or ridged grill pan with non-stick spray and set over medium heat.  Add onion, red bell pepper and water; cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is evaporated and vegetables are very tender, about 8 minutes.

Transfer to large bowl ad let cool 10 minutes.  Add chicken breast, Buffalo wing sauce, and salt; mix well. With wet hands, form into 8 (1/2 inch thick) patties.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm - at least 1 hour or over night.

Spray skillet with non-stick spray and set over medium-high heat.  Add patties and cook until instant read thermometer inserted into side of each burger registers 165 degrees F - 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Split buns, pull out some of the bread from centers.  Place burgers on bottom halves of buns; top  with lettuce leaves, tomato slices, blue cheese and remaining buns.
